OpenGLES Game engine

16 February 2013 - 10:36 AM

Hi guys, I'm looking for a C++ OpenGLES 2 3D game engine.

First of all, I don't want to use Unity and other unity-like engines and stuff.


http://www.gameplay3d.org/ is great, but it's complicated and a bit too big for my taste.

Also, I can't find any tutorials or docs on how to use gameplay3d on linux.


I'm just looking for simple, small and free C++ framework that will run on Android.

Some features that I need :

Shader loading

Basic model loading

Animation support and maybe some UI controls.

Good documentation



Thank you smile.png

Starting with OpenGL ES 2

07 February 2013 - 03:17 PM

Hi smile.png
I'm really confused now.
I'm 17 and I want to learn game design for mobile platforms (Android and iOS).
I have some game programming experience with XNA and C#, and I have solid knowledge of C/C++.
These are issues that are stopping me from learning OGLES : 

  • I have no Android or iPhone device, so I'm wondering is there any way to emulate OGLES 2 on desktop (Ubuntu Linux) ?


  • What modern books and tutorials on GLSL and shader math can You recommend ?


  • Is there even a chance to learn fundamentals of OpenGL ES 2 and Shaders using GLSL in 6 months ?


  • Can indie game pay my college ? smile.png


Thank You in advance, and I'm sorry if the question is poor or bad, but I don't have anyone to ask these questions and I believe that communty can help me smile.png
